I've read a number of Nesbo's Harry Hole books, but this was the first non-Hole book that I've read, and it was actually a rather decent read.

It seems a man break out of prison to avenge the death of his father, who had died years before. In the process he implements a cunning plan to establish who exactly killed him all those years before. If you can suspend your disbelief, about certain areas of daftness in the book, you'll find it a good read.

My biggest grumbles focus on me not necessarily getting certain Norwegian "ideas" that don't necessarily make sense to me (for example police officers not being permitted to enter hostels for known drug users, which would have ended the story on page 100), and the fact that the son got his "stuff" together do dramatically that he pulled off a complicated plan.

If you can suspend your disbelief on these points. you'll do fine. It's a fun read. If you can't you might find yourself thinking "Grrr.... Come on really? You expect me to believe that?"

I enjoyed reading this book. It flowed well and the characters were really interesting. The ending was a surprise too.
